This 2-bedroom penthouse in 320 W. Oakdale in East Lakeview has been on the market since September 2012.
Yes, it is a “real” penthouse.
It’s on the top floor and it has a massive private terrace which has views of Lincoln Park and the lake.
It was apparently the home of the architect who designed the building in 1955: Milton Schwarz.
320 W. Oakdale is considered one of the finer examples of Chicago modernist mid-century architecture.
Its floor to ceiling windows were ahead of its time.
The property is being sold as an estate sale. I don’t know if some of the furniture will transfer with the property.
In this post from Curbed Chicago in September 2012, you can see the blue bathtub and toilet in one of the bathrooms. It’s not in the current listing.
The kitchen is also not pictured.
But a buyer would redo the kitchen and baths anyway- right?
It has central air but no in-unit washer/dryer.
Parking is also available in the building with a $1000 one time transfer fee.
The unit was recently reduced $40,000 to $629,000.
Who has the vision to take this on?
And at what price?
Donald Breitfelder at Koenig & Strey Real Living has the listing. See the pictures here.
Or you can see it in person at the Open House on Sunday, March 10 from 1- 3 PM.
